Favorite thing about this season overall: My favorite thing about springtime would have to be that everything is brand new. In a sense, it’s the physical “new year” for nature. There are animals of all kinds being born, gorgeous buds blooming on fresh green bushes and trees, the mornings are cool and the days are getting warmer in preparation for summertime. There’s nothing comparable to seeing fawns in the field and baby birds in the trees.
During this season...
Favorite thing to eat: My favorite food when springtime rolls around would have to be all of the fruits and veggies that are in season! I live in a very large farming community in Southern Colorado, so come spring all of the farmers start opening their stands with fresh picked green beans, peas, lettuce, rhubarb, strawberries, etc. It’s fantastic because it’s so much tastier, cheaper and organic than buying them from the store!
Favorite thing to drink: Come springtime, my absolute favorite refreshment would have to be ice-cold sweet tea. It’s a classic through the summer too, but in the spring when it starts to get warmer there’s no reason not to enjoy a glass!
Favorite thing to wear: I am one of those people that wears jeans and hoodies all the way through the middle of the summer. If you ask me, springtime is still too chilly for summer dresses and shorts! On occasion though, if it’s a nice warm afternoon, I will throw on some patterned leggings and a long tank top with sandals. It’s perfect with a light cardigan in the morning too.
Favorite thing to do: I have this little personal tradition. In the spring, I like to drive up to the mountains and walk around. There are lakes up there, fields, trails in the trees, and so much more. It’s the prime time to do so because the snow has started melting, but it’s still cool and crisp up there. It’s a rush that you don’t get in the valleys below, and it’s not the same during any other time of the year. You can hear the birds singing and the water flowing down the streams, there are even places that you can go spelunking. (I have yet to try that, it’s on my bucket list for sure though!)
